phpBB db schema outside of phpBB

Postby webnoobie on Mon Feb 05, 2007 5:17 am


Is there a way to use the MySQL class from mysql.php in the /db/ directory outside of the phpBB? In other words, how could I use the db/mysql.php class in another open source software that will be able to connect to phpBB if the user chooses to? The mysql class needs to be used first though. How would I go about doing this?

Thanks in advanced. Most appreciated!

Yep, you can use it, and I don't think it requires any modifications at all.
Do NOT pm me, I don't visit this forum anymore, don't own it, don't provide any support and don't moderate.

On the question how:

Code: Select all
// do you init
$dbserver = 'localhost';
$dbuser = 'root';
$dbpass = '1234!@#$';
$dbname = 'mydb';
$db = new sql_db($dbserver, $dbuser, $dbpass, $dbname);
// continue your code.
It never hurts to help.....
